How to improve polyethylene pipes processing

Common practice in the extrusion of polyethylene pipes, the use of organic peroxides allows, through a crosslinking process, to transform the thermoplastic material into thermoset, with the objective of gaining physical properties and high temperature resistance.

The  problem is that this practice ends up making Polyethylene too hard to extrude, making the processing of the tube more difficult.

Thinking of a solution to this problem, Retilox offers the market a material called Retiplast Mix, which helps in the processing of these tubes, making the material more malleable without loss of properties.
